Welcome to ORASIS - the digital library of ancient Greek church inscriptions from the territory of Bulgaria. We are an online resource that provides free access to the rich epigraphic documentation of Bulgaria, created in the period from the 6th century BC to the 6th century AD.
ORASIS is a project funded by the European Regional Development Fund, implemented by a team from the Department of Classical Philology at Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski". The project was created to provide free access to ancient Greek church inscriptions from the territory of Bulgaria, which are a valuable source of information for the history, culture and language of Bulgaria and the Greco-Roman civilization.
Based on the Telamon platform with open source code, ORASIS provides its users with powerful tools for reading and analyzing the texts of the inscriptions. Each of these inscriptions has been translated into Bulgarian and English, and each .xml file can be downloaded freely and used in further research.
Our database allows for continuous updating and supplementation of the information, as well as the creation of links between the inscriptions and searches by various criteria. In this sense, ORASIS supports the study of the history, culture and language of both Bulgaria in Antiquity and the Greco-Roman civilization as a whole.
ORASIS is the largest epigraphic resource for Bulgaria and an important source of information for scholars working in the fields of archaeology, classical philology, history, cultural heritage and other scientific disciplines.
